|trajectory||The path of a projectile through space|
|uniform circular motion||The movement of an object or particle trajectory at a constant speed around a circle with a fixed radius|
|centripetal acceleration||the center-seeking acceleration of an object moving in a circle at a constant speed|
|centripetal force||The net force exerted toward the center of a circle that causes an object to have a centripetal acceleration|
